Another baseball season is nearly upon us, and while we don’t know the specifics of how and when the season will function, we do know one thing: we’d like you to write for us. We’re going to be looking for writers to join us, specifically any who are interested in doing everything it is that we do here:
- Covering specific games with game threads & nightly recaps
- Previewing upcoming opponents in series previews
- Providing original analysis and thoughts on the latest and greatest with the Yankees
- Pitching in with prospect coverage & nightly recaps of the farm’s games
- Joining our weekly podcast
- Arguing about the Yankees in our Slack channel
You get the idea. Unfortunately, these are unpaid positions. This blog is a passion project for all of us. Of the limited revenue we do generate, 100% goes to keeping the lights on with the site and podcast. We all have different day jobs and do this strictly because we love doing it.
With that in mind, we will hold you under no obligations in terms of written volume. We would not expect a set number of posts per week or anything like that. In other words, you can write as frequently as you want. We just hope you’d be a willing participant in our season’s coverage.
There is no prior writing experience necessary. We strongly encourage anyone, especially those from communities typically underrepresented in baseball writing circles, to reach out. We would really like to emphasize this point. Having a diverse team with a variety of perspectives and points-of-view is extremely, extremely important to us.
So, if that sounds like something you’d be interested in, please do send us an email at viewsfrom314 [at] gmail [dot] com by Monday, February 8. To be considered, please include a brief bio/introduction and one original, unpublished post as a sample of your style and voice. There is no strict word count or topic – all we want is to hear your voice and see your perspective shine through in a post you’d think would fit on Views.
We will do our best to respond to everyone, and we’d ideally like to bring everyone aboard before the start of Spring Training. Thanks, and go Yanks!
